I always leave this bivy in my bag. It helps with condensation build up inside the tent, but it works great outside too. I have used it on mountaineering trips, and it works pretty well. The mesh face is annoying, cuz it can get wet through there, but for 90 bucks, I'm not gonna complain. I found that by using my hard shell around the mesh part of the face, the bivy works great. I wouldn't use it on a big wall, but for anything else, this is the stuff. oh yeh, it's super light. Almost as small and light as my jacket.
